Silas – Art Update, Summer 2024

I asked Silas to send me some pictures of his recent art (and there are also some that I found while cleaning up and enjoyed. Cleaning in my house is like an art treasure hunt).

Where we usually find Silas – yes, he does go through DOZENS of notebooks every year.

Silas has learned more about shading and perspective in a year of drawing with Shaymus than I would ever have thought possible. Although some of this is clearly manga fan art, he’s developing his own style.
